The "Consolation" estate range is a selection of the most beautiful plots from our Mas Cristine vineyard (Côtes du Roussillon). The specificity of this range of micro-vats is that they are only composed of single grape varieties! An original and atypical way to discover the Roussillon grape varieties on well-defined terroirs.

Our story

When Mas Cristine was taken over in 2006 and seeing the diversity and potential of the grape varieties present in the vineyard, the idea was to create an original range to highlight these forgotten grape varieties - such as Marsanne - or to revisit the traditional grape varieties of the Mediterranean basin like Syrah. The original names with Anglo-Saxon assonance are the result of Andy Cook, English by birth and Scottish by adoption ! These names often have one or two meanings, or even three. But for the record, the Wild Boar vintage was born because every year wild boars devour 30% of our most beautiful Syrah plot.

Other little stories

"Consolation" offers an original insight into everything that the Roussillon region has to offer: its rich and varied soils, its generous climate and its traditional grape varieties.

Our plots selected for the "Consolation" estate range benefit from an even more rigorous work of the vine: weeding with a pickaxe, manual leaf thinning, precise ploughing with a horse. This rigour also applies during vinification: sorting table, manual or foot pigeage.
